Bistro
Located just off the square in downtown Healdsburg, Chalkboard is a casual and contemporary restaurant that celebrates the best ingredients Sonoma has to offer. Executive Chef Justin Davis's menu of small plates is inspired by produce from a dedicated four-acre garden, and paired with local wine flights and inventive cocktails. Daily-changing offerings are influenced by ingredients sourced from local purveyors and farms, from crudos to just-picked salads; handmade pastas; and roasted and grilled meats and seafood.

Chalkboard is featured in numerous publications like the San Francisco Chronicle and California Home+Design. It offers wine by the glass or bottle, as well as cocktails and beer.

    Everything about this visit to Chalkboard was outstanding - the menu was accessible (meaning: not a lot of oddball ingredients and precious words) and the food came out perfectly. Coursing was expertly handled by our helpful server, M. We’re looking forward to our next visit. Great job Team Chalkboard!

    Small plates are great. Especially liked the Burrata. Less enchanted with the main dishes. Unfortunate sweetness in their Heirloom Polenta which I did not like. The eggs benedict came out cold. I'd try again - many things they do right and perhaps it just was a bad day.

    A pretty average dinner for Healdsburg. Small pours with some average food. We were here for happy hour the next day and food was so-so. Waitress gave us an almost empty ketchup bottle with some crust around the edge…. Not what I’d expect from an upscale restaurant.

    It was such a disappointment because it was highly recommended but the service was very poor and the food was subpar. They brought the entree at the end of the meal and we ordered the sticky ribs it was more the fatty ribs. Nothing was coordinated. Very dissatisfied. Not to recommend for the price

    I’ve loved this place from its beginning. What has happened. Almost 30 minutes to see a waitress. 45 minutes for two of the three drinks. One was wrong. Slow slow slow slow. I had given my credit card to the host because I wanted to treat. I’m had to akk for the check or it might never have come. They brought the check alright. But within ur my credit card and no one knew where it was. 15 more Minutes. Very bad evening. Made me sad

    Massive Disappointment. Great back patio with kind, considerate service. Bad food. Not just OK or less than expected. 2 duck confit dried out like paper bags. Tough overcooked pork belly. None of this should ever have made it out of the kitchen if anyone had checked. Had to chase down our drinks after a very long wait. Kudos that they comped most of the meal and were apologetic. Waste of a dining meal.

    This was one of the best overall dining experiences I've had in a long time- and I eat often. My friend and I both enjoyed our immaculate meals. The components included were fresh, tasty, and a great deal of thought and care clearly went into everything. The restaurant and bathrooms were spotless. Our server, Hailey, was adorable. She gave great suggestions and was friendly and prompt. Honestly, this was a real TREAT!

    Four of us celebrated a 40th wedding anniversary here. We shared 7 dishes, including three salads, a side of padrone peppers, and two entrees, a roasted salmon and a seafood risotto. Each dish was very well prepared, and the seafood risotto was the best I have ever had. Service was perfect; attentive without hovering or pressuring us. While not cheap, the price point was quite reasonable for the equality of the food. Also, the wine list was sufficiently varied that we had little trouble selecting what would pair well each course. Chalkboard was a great find. I strongly recommend it for a nice evening out.

    This is our third time eating at Chalkboard and the food, service and ambiance never cease to impress! The bouillabaisse was perfectly light while still being satisfying enough for an entree, the salmon was amazing as well and went perfectly with the corn and green beans it was served with! For dessert we had the cherry sorbet since we were celebrating a birthday which conveniently (intentionally?) tasted delicious with the black Forrest verrine, so delicious! We’ll be back next time we’re in the area!

    Way too expensive for the quality of the food. Felt like they served what they bought at the store. Even the 'homemade' sticky bun was bland. Can't recommend it for the price.
